Do you think that Jesus had children?
In my hub Was Jesus Married, I explore the concept of the movie The Di Vinci code. In this they say jesus had a child and his bloodline is still living today. Do you think this is possible or likely?
I don't think Jesus was married and had children. Although The Di Vinci Code promotes this idea, Scripture is silent on the subject: probably because it never occurred. It would seem reasonable that if this were the case Scripture would speak loudly. What better example of being a husband and father could be found than that of Jesus. Although it would have been possible, it seems unlikely for the above reasons.
GraceAndPeace I cover what you say in my hub, by explaining why there is no mention in the Bible.
lol being married and having children isn't a Sin and the Bible does mention instances the point to him being married such as when Martha complained to Jesus that Mary wasn't doing her share of the chores. You would have to understand Jewish customs at the time to get it though. The problem with actually reading proclamations of his marriage aside from the marriage feast at Cana which must be understood in context as well, is that there was at least one religion that handled the scriptures that banked on accruing land by inheritance from priests that were taught to live celibate. The crowd and fellow scholars called him Rabbi or Rabboni lol however its spelled and in both cases these status symbols denoted marriage. His ability to teach in the temple was also a matter of his status. They didn't try to kill him for going there without status, they didn't like what he had to say.
Why not?! If he really is a hystorical figure I see no reason he would not have children.
That a good question, Mankind has many different theories, but we will not know the truth. Until he returns back to us to tell us all the lies that have been bestowed upon him. All I can say is love the lord with all your heart and remember he gave up his life so that one day we can also sit by his side. Remember his love.
Loving genealogy like I do, I think it would be great to discover his lineage. Not to proof conspiracy theories or anything, just because it would be cool to know if he did.
No, Jesus Christ the Messiah, the Promised One, the Bright and Morning Star, the Branch of Jesse, the only Begotten Son of God, God the Son, did not have children.
That was not the mission He purposed to accomplish in coming to earth. God came to earth and wrapped Himself in human flesh in order to fulfill the Father's will which was to reconcile all things in heaven and in earth back to Him.
Jesus had a specific purpose to fulfill in His earthly ministry. He had a specific reason for coming to earth. That purpose and reason was to fulfill the Father's will. The Father's will has been revealed throughout the Word of God. His will was to reconcil (bring back into harmony and peace) all things to HIm.
Reconciliation is Christ's purpose for coming, restoring all things from the chaotic state that was brought into the world through the sin of man.
The word states that through Jesus' redemptive work all who believe in Him and His sacrificial atonement are no longer in a state of chaos and rebellion but have been restored to the original state of mankind before sin and now have peace with God.
The following scripture speaks to us clearly the concept of reconciliation through Jesus Christ.
"Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! For if, when we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation." Romans 5:9-11
So you see, Jesus' purpose to come to earth in the form of man was not to get married and have a family. While marriage is an honorable sacrament it was not the calling the Lord Jesus had upon His life to fulfill.
To speculate on things that have no valid claims is to discredit the purpose of Christ's coming and to deemphasize the redemptive work accomplished through Him.
I think it is an interesting discussion and a possibility. However the movie as well as all the other stuff from Dan Brown is just fiction.
i know he did. he has 4 kids 3 boys and a girl. they live in mexico and he works in canada in the summer on a farm. the guy is hilarious and loves his family with all his heart.
i don't think so.the bible would have probably mentioned his son(if he had one).
Your question reminds me of one called "The Man from Earth" movie, recommended appreciation
Actually Jesus did not marry. He loved people but not romantic love. It is very difficult to say that he had children.
Its possible..... history is his-story. "He" being the one in power... so history can be distorted, and truth can be disguised. Don't know for sure if He did or didn't; but since there isn't much explicit discussion on the topic in scriptures and history, I would say it's a 50/50 bet..
No, I do not.........and I have let my mind wander there......
Even, if He did, it in no way changes HIS message, afterall, it is not sinful to have a family.
Interesting question and I am interested to learn more about it. Started something to know ...
No I do not think he had children, but we are all children of god
No one really knows, but looking through some historical and very old hidden bible texts, I can tell you he was Black, Brown and not the way Hollywood shows portray him to be!
Did he have Kids? I would say not likely, because he was highly elevated spiritually, and that height of spirituality mating is out of the question!
Everything in the DA Vinci code is false! The story line is not accurate and based on that alone, I will say Jesus did not have any kids!
Why people say that he did not have children. Is getting married a sin? Its strange I don't know whether he had or not but he may have. He was a human being so everything is possible.......
Of course he had children. He spoke in the synagogue. Only a rabbi could speak there and a rabbi had to be married. And a married man always had children. So, Jesus had to be a married man and a rabbi to do what he did culturally - speak in a synagogue.
Oh, yes, I think it is very likely. Anyhow he lived as a man before he died. So why shouldn´t he have children?
I know that Jesus did not have children because He was the spotless Lamb of God, without sin. He was not married, and he did not commit fornication, therefore He did not have children
No, Jesus did not have children. The Di Vinci code is fiction and that is the way it should be treated. Jesus's bloodline would have been carried on through his siblings. So it is possible for someone to be a direct relative of Jesus; but not a direct descendant. There is no mention of children near the crucification site or in the gospels. I believe if Jesus had children it would not have been a secret. After all he already had a bad reputation which led to his crucification anyway. Something to think about... The church did not hide the fact that Peter was married with children. The Catholic church refers to Peter as the first Pope.
I would think that he was such a busy man according to other doctrines that he did not have time to make babies.
Yes. I and you are standing testimony! (Are we not all God's children?)

Christians: if Mohammed came back to earth would you become Muslim?A couple months back someone asked atheists if they would become Christian if Jesus came back. I wasn't around for that so I am turning the question on its head to be part of the discussion.
